Employment Law in Pennsylvania 

Business owners, human resources professionals, managers, and supervisors are tasked with navigating the myriad of federal, state, and local laws regulating the employer/employee relationship.

On the other side, Employees are often left in the dark about the laws, misled, victimized by violations of employment laws, and at the mercy of either devious, narcissistic, or incompetent business owners, supervisors, or human resources professionals.

Employment and Labor laws arise and regulate all aspects of employment such as interviewing, hiring, medical/drug testing, paid time off, employee benefits, discrimination, and termination of employment.

Business owners and those tasked with supervising and managing employees must be versed in laws such as, The Fair Labor Standards Act, Family Medical Leave Act, Americans with Disabilities Amended Act, Affordable Care Act, and the Civil Rights Act coupled with state and local Human Relations Acts.

Employees should also be well versed in all Labor and Employment laws as well so they are fully aware of their rights and protections in the workforce, and the regulations placed upon employers.

Employment protections focus on protected classes such as Race, Age, Gender, and Disabilities, to name a few, but the list of protected classes is different under Federal, State, and Local Laws.

It is for these reasons that Employers and Employees need a trusted, knowledgeable, and effective legal partner when issues concerning Employment and Labor Laws arise on the employer or employee side of the fence.
